Happy 50th Birthday Dannii Minogue.

Recommended Posts

The Minogue sisters Kylie and Dannii are two of the most beloved gay icons to Australians.


Dannii was actually a bigger star than Kylie minogue at one point, thanks to appearing on Australian version of Kids, incorporated Young talent time..even Kylie appeared..

Dannii was known to perform R&B and US Dance acts like Janet Jackson and Madonna.

Unfortunately due to being a Kid, her success got basically overshadowed by Kylie, cos in 1987 thanks to a 3 album deal by Australian independent label Mushroom records and the same deal with PWL in the UK, Kylie was well on her way to be the closest competition to Madonna in the UK and Australia. 


Dannii would release her first album.


Dannii (Australia only)

Party Jam (titled in Japan due to Kylie being a songwriter on this track)


Love and Kisses (UK and UK, unlike Kylie, dannii never saw the commercial success like Kylie did in the states. This is shocking considering love and kisses was inspired by Janet Jackson and US R&B at the time where dancing in r&B videos was an essential and crucial must).


Love and Kisses would underperform to any industry standards, given how her sister was Kylie, Dannii pretty much gave up on music, her last album came out in 2007, titled club disco. 


Dannii abandoned the r&B pop sound after 1993's Get into you, flopped and was dropped by MCA Music..


Dannii in 1997 reinvented herself as a club diva with 1997's universally acclaimed Girl featuring huge Hits in the UK, All I wanna do, everything I wanted and the France anthem Disrembrance, but despite huge hits the album stalled at #64 on the UK charts,  her luck would change when in 2001 a collaboration with Riva called Stringer (who do you love now) would set the then 30 year old for 3 years of pop music domination in Europe.


In 2003, her most successful project at the age of 32 happened, neon nights. 


Unlike kylie, The lyrics are aggressive.  


Put the needle on it uses a double entendre of needle as the guys Anatomy and her anatomy where the needle drops, is the record, and the line "Dirty hands, I demand" is a gay club slogan for hookups.  

Then it got bigger when her biggest hit in her career I begin to wonder was issued and it peaked at #2 in the UK singles charts..


Neon nights is the second Dannii album to be commercially released in the states via Ultra records, a dance label. 


Happy birthday Dannii.


FYI, Kylie is known to get mad when people in the industry mention that Dannii's music career never took off like Kylie's did. She gets very protective and will call out and blame it on the very old rule of there could only be one, which unfortunately implies mostly to females in any entertainment industry or real life work professions.
